Close to my Heart Kraft Album meets the Cricut Artbooking cartridge!

This month's theme is Kraft - that is, any of our super Kraft items! The 3-ring binder, Kraft tube, ring box - whichever! I have chosen the 3-Ring binder since it is going to be our vacation album for our trip to Florida! The pages aren't done yet, but for now that is fine. The pictures are still waiting for me to send them for printing!

If you came here from Ashley's blog, you are on the right track! But if you get lost along the way, go back to Michelle Stewart in Nova Scotia for the complete list of hoppers!

For my little album, I used a variety of papers as well as the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge. I LOVE that cartridge!!

The palm tree was cut from a sheet of the B&T from the old Roxie paper pack (the one with the zebra stripes on one side) and the green leaves are Olive. The sun is an overlay from Artbooking cut at the size specified in the handbook from the yellow in the Dream Pop paper pack. The sand at the bottom is actually half of a leaf that I found on Artbooking, stretched and skewed a touch, then cut in half. I also cut the ends off so it fit just right! I made it a bit too big on purpose so I could do that. "Our" and "Vacation" are cut from Colonial White cardstock with letters from Artbooking (what else!?) and welded together using the Cricut Craft Room and then sponged with Topiary Exclusive Ink. (Have I said how much I LOVE the Artbooking cartridge?) The "2013" and "Florida" are the Houndstooth Irresistibles that I also sponged with Topiary Ink.

I popped up the green leaves on the palm tree with some 3-D Foam Tape to give just a bit more dimension.

I hope you like my little album so far. I will post pictures of the pages as I get them done. First, I MUST get my pictures printed!! But with over 1400 to choose from, it is proving to be a difficult task. Oh well. It will get done. I look forward to your comments!

Now hop on over to Kathy's blog for some more artistic talent!!
